Laurence Cockcroft (St. John's)
Co-founder, Transparency International, UK

Mr. Cockcroft is a development economist whose interest and commitment to development in Africa has lasted since his first experience in Nigeria as a volunteer (VSO) in 1962. Following a study of history and economics at Cambridge University (St. John's) he was awarded a fellowship by the London based Overseas Development Instiute to work in the Ministry of Rural Development in Zambia in 1966. He later extended this experience of working closely with small scale farmers to Tanzania where he was employed by the Tanzania Rural Development Bank from 1971-2. ‘Global Corruption' represents the author's accumulated experience working extensively in the developing world, co-founding Transparency International and developing strategies to combat governmental and corporate indifference to corruption issues in both the developed world and developing world. He was Chairman of TI's UK chapter from 2000-8 and initiated  its work on corruption in the arms trade, and the Business Principles for Countering Bribery.
